Whoa! that beading must have taken forever? Did you individually place each bead on?  Nice work!

Applause to you and your tired little beading hands Bigmouth!  That is really lovely, and perfect for that Frida-lovin' Stiffy!

On the top, I think they are strung and then glued. That's some serious patience!

Thanks, everybody!  I was pretty proud of the beading, myself.  Wink
I covered the sides of the tin with super-duper double-sided tape (Oh So Tacky, or something like it), and then rolled the tin in beads.  I did a little pushing and shoving to get rid of the gaps.   I strung the beads for the top (which wasn't very time-consuming, since I had a nice, long, ridiculously skinny beading needle and a random color scheme).  A thin line of E6000 held them in place through the changes in direction (for asymmetry).  The secret to keeping them solidly in place was a few coats of craft store polyurethane (which doesn't stink!).  That's also why the image on top is so shiny, even though it was printed on matte paper.

Does that answer your questions?  Cheesy  I don't think I would have gone quite so far with it, but I was determined not to make a craft store supply run.  I ended up having to buy gold cord to finish it, though (and everybody's getting gold cord on their ATCs now).  Cheesy

Not a single wiggle in any of the beaded areas. I think I could throw it in my purse and it wouldn't get damaged at all.
